More awards for 'The Independent'
Saturday 26 April 2008
Independent columnist Johann Hari has won the Orwell Prize, given annually to the journalist who has best achieved Orwell's aim of making "political writing into an art".
The judges praised Mr Hari's work for "ambitious reporting, careful and artful writing and elegant and effective political analysis. "The range and depth of Johann Hari's reporting and analysis reminds us long-form British journalism is alive and well," they said. Mr Hari's prize came in the same week that the paper won at the National Newspaper Awards.
The Independent took the Fujifilm Grand Prix for a series of self-improvement promotions, given away with the paper over the past two years. The judges praised the range and variety of the publications.
Collected by circulation director Paul Little, the award is the only industry prize to reward excellence in news media production.
